How the Dolphins' draft picks can play a role in Miami (0:45)

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins are starting the 2017 NFL draft with a defensive mindset.

ESPN Stats and Information  

All-American Cordrea Tankersley was busy in his decorated career in the Clemson secondary, totaling 149 tackles, nine interceptions and 22 pass breakups in 1,906 snaps over 55 games (30 starts). He should fit in with a Dolphins defense that was fifth in the NFL in interception percentage in 2016.

Dolphins select CB Cordrea Tankersley

The Clemson corner is a playmaker with an impressive blend of size, length and top-end speed.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins selected former Clemson cornerback Cordrea Tankersley in the third round with the No. 97 overall pick. This was a compensatory pick Miami gained in the offseason. Tankersley will add depth in the secondary and perhaps push 2016 second-round pick Xavien Howard in training camp.

Dolphins take another LB in Raekwon McMillan

Drafting its second straight linebacker, Miami gets Ohio State's team captain and leading tackler the past two seasons.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins selected LB Raekwon McMillan in the second round with the No. 54 overall pick. Miami needed help at linebacker and finally got it. McMillian will compete with Koa Misi for a starting job.

The Dolphins have several needs to address Friday in the second and third rounds. Among them are OLB, G and DT.

Five potential Day 2 targets for Dolphins

Adding an interior offensive lineman like Forrest Lamp and linebacker help figures to be among the Dolphins' priorities on Friday.

McCoy: 'It's hard to give Rex all the blame' (1:52)

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

By no means do the Dolphins need another running back. Not even close. But FSU's Dalvin Cook would look REALLY GOOD in Adam Gase's offensive scheme. If Cook falls to Miami at No. 54 tonight, I'd be tempted to take him as a "best available player" pick and just figure out the running back logjam later.

Sasquatch crashes Harris' draft party (0:19)

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins GM Chris Grier said the Dolphins received two trade offers for the No. 22 pick but like Charles Harris enough to turn in their card.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins GM Chris Grier said on the selection of DE Charles Harris: "You can't have enough pass rusher."

ESPN Stats and Information  

Charles Harris' big-play ability should be welcome on a Dolphins defense that allowed the fourth-most yards per game and an NFL-worst 7.0 yards per rush outside the tackles last season.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins select Missouri defensive end Charles Harris at No. 22. Harris will add depth to an aging defensive end rotation that includes veterans Cameron Wake, Andre Branch and William Hayes. Miami had an interesting prospect available in former Alabama LB Reuben Foster on the board but decided to pass, likely due to character and injury concerns. That will be a decision worth visiting down the road.

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dolphins have two teams left in front of them and a pair of interesting linebackers -- Rueben Foster and Jarrad Davis -- are currently available. An outside linebacker is their biggest need but they can go in several directions.
